Do you like Cadbury Creme Eggs?
I have a sweet tooth, but I find them to be a little cloying sometimes. I can do one — maybe two — of the mini ones before calling it a night. Stopping at two candies a night? That’s unheard of around these parts.
But have you ever noticed when you add more sweetness, things somehow become a little less sweet? It’s science, babe, and it’s happening here.
Miss ‘I-Can-Only-Eat-Two-Cadbury-Eggs’ over here can easily polish off a basket full of these Cadbury Creme Egg Brownie Bombs. They’re a spin-off of my very first (and still extremely popular) Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownie Bombs. Except, instead of cookie dough, we’re using Mini Cadbury Creme Eggs for that Easter flair. And in my eyes, the brownie kind of helps cut the sugary fondant center of the infamous eggs, if that makes any sense. Brownies to the rescue!
These Cadbury Creme Egg Brownie Bombs have the miniature Cadbury Creme Egg in the middle of all this chaos. The next layer is a fudgy baked brownie. It’s simple: bake your fudge brownies, then press them gently in your hand, then wrap ’em around the Cadbury egg – kind of like a brownie heating blanket. (Side note: we should market those). Then we coat the whole tamale in white chocolate and sprinkles, because sprinkles are scientifically proven to make life infinitely better.
The result? This madness. I’m not sorry.
Anywho. These little brownie bombs are the perfect treat for Easter gift baskets, mini goodies for coworkers or friends, or just because.
I’m leaning on just because.
Cadbury Creme Egg Brownie Bombs
- 1 pan 13x9" fudge brownies, baked, cooled, and cut into approx. 1-2" squares (I recommend using Pillsbury's Chocolate Fudge mix)
- 15 Cadbury Creme Mini Eggs unwrapped
- 1 pkg. Vanilla Candiquik
- Assorted Easter sprinkles
- Line a rimmed baking sheet with wax paper or a silicone liner; set aside.
- Take a brownie square in your hand and, using the heel of your hand, gently compress the brownie flat. Take a Cadbury Mini Egg and wrap it with the brownie, rolling and pinching the brownie in your hands until it covers the mini egg completely. Mold into an egg-shape if possible. Set on the baking sheet. Repeat with remaining eggs.
- Once all the bombs are made, freeze them for about 30 minutes to firm up.
- Melt the CandiQuik according to package directions, until smooth. Dip each brownie bomb into the CandiQuik with a fork, coating it completely. Allow excess to drip off and return to the baking sheet. Repeat with remaining brownie bombs.
- Once all bombs are coated, spoon the remaining CandiQuik into a small resealable plastic baggy. Seal out the air, snip off a corner of the bag, and drizzle the remaining CandiQuik over the coated brownie bombs. Immediately top with sprinkles. Allow chocolate to set before serving.
You guuuuyysss. These bombs are soooo sweet and rich; the perfect Easter treat! Feel free to coat them with regular Chocolate CandiQuik if you’d like, but I like the Vanilla CandiQuik for an extra sweet touch to play off the fondant filling of the eggs. These are so fun!

These. Are. Awesome. I’m more of a fan of the Cadbury Mini Eggs with just the chocolate filling. Occasionally, I’ll take a dabble with the creme filled ones. Like you said, they’re super duper sweet. Now, wrapping them with brownies, totally brilliant. These would be a perfect dessert for Easter. 😀
Thanks Erin! I know, the creme ones can be so cloyingly sweet, but the chocolate filled ones would be perfect for the brownie bombs! I’m even dabbling with the idea of using the caramel eggs – that’s more up my alley. <3
I would love to make these. But I would also like to pin on pinterest. But not able to. I’ve tried every which way I can think of and. Nothing. Why not?

Nancy, I heart your face! Thanks for making me laugh this morning 🙂 xo!
Heather @ Sugar Dish Me says
OMG Hayley these are amazing!! I’m not really a Cadbury Egg – Eater either but I can totally get down with the brownie blanket. You are so smart.
Brownie blankets FTW! Thanks Heather 😀
I am soooo going to get those mini eggs today! I needed a great idea for a bake sale and I think these will be it!
Thanks so much, Janet 🙂 I know these will do marvelous at a bake sale!
i LOVE LOVE LOVE Cadbury Creme eggs. I don’t even know why – when you think about it theyre kinda gross – but man i am ADDICTED every Easter!
Haha SaraLily you’re so right! The insides freak me out every time I cut into one, but they’re really good so I deal 😀 Thanks for your sweet comment! xoxo.

Cutting sweetness with more sugar… I love it and your logic, my kind of thinking right there. What a great pairing with the brownie and white chocolate coating.
And I totally love Cadbury Creme Eggs, but ya, they can become too sickly after having too many. That’s why I love the mini version of them (they’re a teeny bit bigger than the Mini Eggs). Do you get them there?
Lisa, we have the mini eggs (used here), the regular-sized egg ones, and then we have just “Cadbury Eggs” which are like hard candy-coated chocolate eggs with no filling. In America I believe they manufacture milk chocolate, dark chocolate, and white chocolate versions. Do you have those too?! And thanks – I love my sweet logic 😀
This is a bomb that I would not mind exploding in my mouth.
We’re on the same level!
Annie @ Annie's Noms says

Kelsey @ Snacking Squirrel says

Thank you, Kelsey! Believe it – there really is a creme egg hiding out in those brownies! 🙂
Shelby @ Go Eat and Repeat says
Cadbury Creme Eggs are my favorite candy of all time! These look deadly for me!
Thanks Shelby! I’d imagine Cadbury Egg fans will have a hard time not eating the entire batch 🙂
Julie @ Julie's Eats & Treats says
Mmmm I adore Cadbury Eggs!!! I can’t imagine how much I’d love them if I stuck them in a brownie bomb… well I can actually and I’m pretty sure I’d face plant in them 🙂
Julie – face-planting is a totally normal side effect of these bombs. 🙂 Thanks for making me laugh this AM!
Julianne @ Beyond Frosting says
These are absolutely perfect!
Goodness Gracious … I NEED These Immediately! They look Awesome!
Thanks girlfriend! I’ll send some up your way if you send me some of those luscious lemon bars you made awhile back. YUM.
Dorothy @ Crazy for Crust says
BEST BROWNIE BOMBS EVER. LOVE!!
Meriem @ Culinary Couture says
Can you just ship me like every flavor brownie bomb you’ve ever made? That would be super awesome!
Meriem – you got it, sista! 🙂
made these for co-workers, no one complained, no one raved yet they dissappeared pretty quickly which is usually a good sign. the high rating is because the finished poduct looked gorgeous. this was a really fun project!
Hi Elizabeth! Glad they disappeared quickly – that’s usually a great sign! 🙂

This looks seriously delicious! I love creme eggs, this year I made a creme egg trifle!
Ooh, that trifle looks delicious, Lucy!!
Is Candiquick available in the UK?
Hi Laura, not positive on that one… but any candy coating discs would work!
